Non-communicable Diseases (NCDs) account for 65% of global deaths among women and are yet to be integrated into global women’s health and development agendas. This panel will discuss next steps to keep momentum on women’s NCDs in the forefront this year as global leaders move forward with next steps from last year’s U.N. Political Declaration on non-communicable diseases.
